Halloween festivities take place throughout the entire month of October!  There are activities every weekend. We go to the farm, carve pumpkins, have a party, and honor Frigga in style by dressing as witches.  The month of fall fun finishes with oaths on Halloween night.

We go to the local farm and pumpkin patch where the little kids and big kids alike have a day of learning about animals and farm life.

After going on a hay ride to the pumpkin patch, we get a few pumpkins to add to what is grown in the garden to carve (there are never too many pumpkins!).  The following weekend is filled with cider, donuts, caramel apples and carving pumpkins for jack-o-lanterns!

We got a special treat - Stephen donated the pumpkin plants that we grew in the garden this year, and he selected the largest of the crop to carve into a Valkenhaus jack-o-lantern!
